Organic Greek Red Saffron aka “BIO Krokos Kozanis”…
“BIO Krokos Kozanis” is distinguished for its excellent quality which places it in the top quality of organic saffron in the world! Saffron was among the most popular & valuable spices of ancient civilizations, for its flavour, colour, pharmaceutical & aphrodisiac properties. Cleopatra used it in her cosmetics, ancient Phoenicians in their offers to Goddess Astarte, Homer mentioned it in his writings, while we still find it in The Old Testament.
The residents of the “Krokos Kozanis” area plant saffron every summer & when autumn arrives remove by hand the precious spots of the beautiful flower before they carefully drain them to make the deep red delicate yarns. Nearly 50,000 spots are needed in order to produce 100g of the perfectly pure organic Greek red saffron. A small quantity of saffron adds an exquisite flavour, colour & aroma in all your dishes such as pasta, rice, soups, sauces, poultry, meat & fish but also to your tea or coffee.
… the Golden Spice of Greece!
